21 Tuesdays - feat. Doris Salcedo & Ai Weiwei (RESCHEDULED)
Free exclusive weekly screenings of episodes from the Art21 series (Art in the Twenty-First Century) followed by open and accessible discussions about the creation and consumption of contemporary art. During each session we will show two 15 minute segments featuring artists from the 7 season series. Following the screenings feel free to head back to class/work, or stick around for some informal discussion (led by a local artist) about the featured artists and enjoy coffee and sweets from Nantucket Bakery.
March 17th 11:30am - 12:30pm
Host: Sarah Idziak, Gallery Manager | 17 Fountain Galleries @KCAD
Featured Artists: Doris Salcedo (Compassion)& Ai Weiwei (Change): How are artists a catalyst for change among their culture and/or a world culture? How does humanitarianism inspire them to create? These Art21 episodes feature artists who bear witness, through their work, to transformation—cultural, material, and aesthetic—and actively engage communities as collaborators and subjects. Their works explore the possibility of understanding and reconciling past and present, while also exposing injustice and expressing tolerance for others.
